Re: so upsetting

Sorry you are having a hard time. Some of us have more trouble than others with healing and getting past the surgery after affects. I had lots of problems with gas, bowel cramping and pain, constipation. I ended up calling the doctor and he prescribed drinking water, eating fruits , veggies and taking Metamucil every day for about 3 weeks until my body got into some kind of routine. I also found walking around more helped.

This surgery can take weeks and sometimes months to get better. It took months till everything healed up good. I goat yeast infection, unhealed vaginal cuff, bacterial infection and I was tired as well (sigh). I guess major surgery is pretty hard on the body.

I hope you get a little better every day. If you are in pain and don't seem to get better give your doctor a call and let him advise you.

Hang in there .
